What to Consider About Memory Care in Macedonia
Macedonia is a suburb of Akron, Ohio, and has a population of about 12,000 people, of whom 17 percent are seniors 65 and over. Seniors in this age group are among the most likely to develop Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease and other dementia-related conditions. Throughout the state, 220,000 seniors are living with one of these diseases, according to the Alzheimer's Association.
To accommodate Macedonia's seniors who require special care due to these cognitive conditions, there are two memory care facilities in Macedonia and more than a dozen more in nearby communities, such as Cleveland and Bedford. In Ohio, memory care facilities are referred to as Residential Care Facilities, and these communities are housed in standalone properties or within assisted living facilities. The Ohio Department of Health regulates and licenses both types of facilities.
- Macedonia's air quality, ranked on a scale of one (worst) to 100 (best), is 67, which is somewhat worse than the U.S. average of 58. According to this index, Macedonian seniors and other residents may be at a greater risk for cancer and respiratory diseases.
- In Ohio, seniors get some tax relief because the state doesn't tax Social Security income. It does tax withdrawals from retirement accounts and wages earned by seniors, so Macedonia seniors have only a little more in the budget.
- Macedonia matches the national average of 39 inches for rainfall. However, with 55 inches of snow on average compared to the U.S. average of 26 inches, Macedonia may prove challenging for families attempting to visit residents in memory care.
- The cost of living in Macedonia is 98, on par with the national average but higher than the state average of 88. This is largely due to the higher housing prices in the larger Akron area, which could be a challenge for families moving from other parts of Ohio to be closer to loved ones in memory care.
